Five Minute Friday—Present

Where ever you are, be there.

I heard that phrase a long time ago. It took a while for me to figure it out. However with the advent of I phones it suddenly became very clear. Probably because we always have the device on us. It seems now we are always talking to at least two people at the same time. One is in person, the other on the device. It rather feels unfair to both parties.

Is that one reason we as folks feel more lonely than ever before? It is a personal challenge to not do it, and give the person I am with in person my full attention.

Note: This is my first attempt to participate in this challenge of Five Minute Friday, please be patient.

  1. Welcome to Five Minute Friday! This is such a warm, caring community…I hope you find a writing home here!

    I try to comment with a Shakespearean sonnet, and you inspired this one. I hope you like it!

    Just be there, where you are placed,
    even though it’s not your dream,
    ’cause for God, there’s no disgrace
    in being what you seem
    to be to all those gathered ’round,
    to be the real you;
    just be the person you have found
    inside your heart; be true
    to all the gifts that God has given,
    hold each one to your heart;
    don’t be striving, don’t be driven,
    and God will do His part
    to bring you to that higher place
    you thought your presence could not grace.
